Filling for 20 to 25 macarons

  • 100 grams (3.5 ounces) white chocolate
  • 50 grams (1.76 ounces) blueberries
  • 10 grams (0.35 ounces) sugar
  • 25 grams (0.88 ounces) cream (33% or more)


  • Food Processor or Blender

    Essential for turning the blueberries into a smooth puree. For an even smoother consistency, make sure to pulse the mixture until it's completely liquified.

  • Fine-Mesh Sieve

    Necessary to strain the blueberry puree, removing any seeds or skins for a velvety texture.

  • Mixing Bowls

    Multiple sizes recommended for various stages of prepping the ganache. Opt for glass bowls to easily monitor melting processes.

  • Spatula

    Perfect for scraping down the sides of the bowl and ensuring every bit of the mixture is utilized.

  • Plastic Wrap

    Tightly covering the ganache will prevent any skin from forming on top, keeping it smooth and ready for those macarons.


Step 1

Step 1: Combine the blueberries and sugar in a small saucepan and purée the mixture as much as possible. Heat the mixture almost to a boil, then strain it through a sieve to remove any solids. For a smoother purée, use a high-speed blender.

Step 2

Step 2: Add the cream to the blueberry purée and bring the mixture to a boil. Pour it over finely chopped white chocolate or chocolate chips. Chop the white chocolate finely to ensure it melts evenly.

Step 3

Step 3: Blend the mixture with a blender until smooth. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Press the plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the ganache to prevent a skin from forming.

Step 4

Step 4: Once the ganache has the consistency of very thick sour cream, it is ready to fill the macarons. Fill them and place them horizontally in the refrigerator for an hour. If needed, the ganache can be re-whipped for a smoother consistency.

Step 5

Step 5: After an hour, the ganache should be set and you can store the macarons upright. Enjoy your delicious macarons! Bon appetit!

🌿 **Gluten-Free Variation:** Luckily, this macaron recipe is naturally gluten-free; just ensure that all your ingredients, especially chocolates and creams, are certified gluten-free to avoid cross-contamination. 🍃 **Vegan Variation:** Replace the white chocolate with vegan white chocolate, and instead of dairy cream, use a plant-based cream such as coconut or soy. Monitor the consistency closely, as plant-based creams can sometimes alter the texture slightly.


  • Why didn't my ganache set properly?

    Make sure you simmer the cream and pour it over the chocolate while it's hot enough to melt but not so hot it burns. Also, chilling the ganache for the recommended time is crucial for setting.

  • Can I use frozen blueberries?

    Yes, just ensure they are fully thawed and drained of excess water to prevent a watery puree.

  • How do I avoid air bubbles in my macarons?

    Tap the baking sheet on the counter a few times before baking; this helps release trapped air.

  • Why did my macarons crack?

    This could be due to oven temperature being too high or not allowing the macarons to rest long enough before baking. Aim for a smooth top and stable feet.

  • How can I get a more intense blueberry flavor?

    You can reduce the blueberry puree on a low simmer to concentrate the flavor before mixing it with the sugar.

  • What's the best way to store macarons?

    Store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They can last up to a week and actually taste better after resting for a day or two.
